    Courtesy of Mark Twain:

    Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it.

    If you can divorce yourself from people, you are bound to make the conclusion that mankind has very little to commend it.

    Mark Twain had another, similar to this.........

    He who attempts to carry a cat by the tail will quickly learn a lesson that will last a lifetime.

    Speaking of Mark Twain, I always liked this quote:
    "I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."

    That stuff... that, moments before, everyone at the dinner table was fighting over to get another serving... is now "that stuff" in the sink strainer that only Mom will touch.

    (No doubt misquoted, due to faulty memory, from Robert Fulghum in "All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten")

    Mom is not stupid. They make strainers for a reason. It's just one kitchen tool in the process of making soup.... :lol:

    Not sure how much your "seeing" of men... :eek: Myself, I favor the women types. Can't really say that the more I see of them, the more I like my dog. So maybe it's just one of those "Metrosexual" type things. :lol:
